    Last earthquake in Denmark was a couple of years ago, an astounding 4.5 on the Richter scale.

    An earlier earthquake, measuring almost 4.0 in 2008, awoke several people in the early morning. There was one casualty; a bookcase fell over, killing a hamster.

    :p

    Yeah... Doesn't it suck to live in North/West Europe? All the earthquakes! I remember an earthquake of 1992. I was one of the people "who did not wake up". :eek: (from their sleep)

    There was an earthquake in The Netherlands last year! I kinda confused it with a truck driving through the street, only to find out later I survived an earthquake ;)

    There have been two small earthquakes that have hit my part of Canada recently. The first one I felt, I was sitting at my desk and I thought maybe the house was slipping on it's foundation or something, then 30 seconds later everyone on Facebook was freaking out.

    The other one I missed as I was on a plane at the time, which is kind of funny because at that time I had only flown twice in the previous decade!

    Well I guess a plane trip is better than shaking trees Reep :) I'm thankful we do not have earthquakes here, and not a huge amount of power outages ;)



    We did have a huge tornado rip apart a chunk of the city in 1987. I was just a kid then but I remember watching everything on the local news. Back then tornadoes were very rare here.

    this is bad, oh god this is bad ! The interview is in less than an hour ! My pants are too tight, I spilled stuff on my only white shirt, it's like a gazilion degrees out there with the goddamn humidity, I'm so nervous I drank 3 coffee and must've smoked half a pack, this is going to show during the interview... On top of that I'm not really sure I want the job. I mean I want it, but it's the night shift thingy, my sleep pattern is already messed up and I need pharmaceutical aid to sleep. ARRRGH I'm freak out and I'm soooooooo gonna messed up this interview.

    One of the things I hate about Winnipeg weather, it can be SO moody.

    Picture it, Sunday afternoon, bright, sunny, at least +30, and not a cloud in sight. So I decide it's the perfect time to go out and get some summer biking done. I love long distance biking when I have the time for it.

    So I start coming home around 6:00 p.m. And ... I'm sure you can see this coming. Yep, a thunder storm rolls in on the wind faster than Thor can nail down Loki. Came home a soaked rat. Unbelievable ...

    Well that was a disaster, as expected I was overwhelmingly nervous. I don't think they'll call back. Oh well, I didn't think I could really work nights anyway.

    Roses can rust .... that's a pretty nice line.



    Violets are blue,
    Roses can rust,
    Puffballs are mushrooms,
    That turn into dust!

    Sure. If you had nothing else to eat, it would certainly keep you alive. :)

    Indeed! :D And if your blood sugar is too low (hypoglycemia caused by diabetes or smoking pot etc), that stuff will probably get you up and running in half a minute. :D

    Dutch variant on the little rhyme you peops posted. The last 2 lines are supposed to be "maar mijn liefde voor jou, zal altijd bestaan (But my love for you, will always exist).

    Rozen verwelken (Roses wither)
    Schepen vergaan (Ships perish)
    Koop dus geen bloemen (So don't buy flowers)
    en vlieg voortaan (And fly henceforth)
